We’re a little late as some of you are already in class with her, but we would like to introduce our newest trainer, Jasmine! We are so happy to add her to our team and we know you guys will love her just as much as we do. You can read her bio below:

Growing up in Connecticut, there was rarely a time I found myself without dogs. From the time I was born, much of my family’s life centered around raising working breeds such as Dobermans, German Shepherds, and Labs.

Over the years I fell in love with their behavior and drive. As a military brat, my dogs were my constant companions through frequent moves. During this time and even after, I often filled my days with training my own dogs and dog sitting for friends.

Shortly after moving to Virginia, I adopted my first puppy, Rayna, and discovered The Good Dog Yorktown. Attending classes as a client quickly turned into a mentorship. With a background in Education through Connecticut College, I found my teaching ability strongly translated into training. Under the guidance of Katie and Morgan, I’ve not only built an incredible relationship with Rayna, but have found passion in instilling that same confidence in other dog owners.

I live for the moments when owners are excited to share milestones they experience in and outside the training room. My goal as a trainer is to set up each individual dog and owner up for success to reach their unique goals.

In our spare time Rayna and I love to go on hikes, beach outings, and road trips. Training has allowed Rayna and I to have the freedom to travel together in a way I’ve always dreamed of and working all together I know we can get you and your companion there too!

It was a beautiful morning for Outdoor Advanced class! These guys killed it at City Center today 💛☀️

Outdoor Advanced is a great class to work your way up to. We travel to a different public location each week and work on your pup’s obedience around real world distractions so that you can be prepared to take your dog anywhere!

Yesterday marked one year exactly since our very first class! We can’t comprehend how this year went by so fast and just how far our business has come in this short amount of time. We’ve come to know many of our clients as close friends and love so many dogs like they are our own. We could not have done this last year without so many amazing dog owners backing us and sending new people our way. We are forever indebted to each of you and hope for many more years working with you and your pups! 🎉🥰

Drop a photo of your dog in the comments if you’re taking classes with us currently or if you have in the past! Everyone appreciates a good dog pic 🐾

We still have a few spots left in our Puppy Obedience classes that start this week. We also opened another Wednesday Basic Obedience class due to the overwhelming demand!

According to a Southampton University study, dogs that took formal training classes had significantly lower total problem behavior scores than dogs that received no formal training. This was even more prevalent in puppies under 6 months of age that took a Puppy training class.

*IMPORTANT- SCHEDULE CHANGE REGARDING JANUARY CLASSES*

Hello All,

We hope you’re having a wonderful holiday break and wanted to inform you of some changes in our January Schedule.

Since there has been such an extreme spike in COVID cases over the holidays we have come to the decision to move classes back one week. This will allow everyone to enter classes without as much worry, as well as give you all more time to sign up for classes, since it was so close to the holidays. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes, however, it is important to us to put our clients safety and health above all else.

This means if your class was set to begin on Monday January 3rd, It will now begin on Monday January 10th instead— and so forth and so on.

Please let us know if you have any questions regarding this change.

Thank you,
The Good Dog Yorktown Team

Here is a list of 3 very important things to keep in mind when you see a dog in public. Just because you see a dog out and about does NOT mean you have the right to engage with it! If you still want to, just be sure to ask permission from the owner first.

Not every dog is friendly, and that’s okay! As long as you respect their personal space, they can enjoy an outing too.

Many people believe that most dogs, especially the ones seen out in public, are 100% friendly. This is NOT the case. The majority of dogs are dog (and sometimes people) selective. That’s completely normal and nothing to be ashamed or embarrassed about. It is important to respect the space of dogs out in public and to always ask before petting or introducing your dog to another pup! ____________________________

Nyla & Jaxon say hello! They definitely miss coming to class! Hope to see you all again soon 😉
I took my 7 month old Doxie to the puppy class. It was so helpful to know I was doing things right. The trainers are very knowledgeable and professional. They make it look easy. I never thought I could afford training, but this was priced right and well worth it! Thank you to Meagan!
